PSHCE

"PSHE education is a planned programme of learning through which children and young people acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives. As part of a whole school approach, PSHE develops the qualities and attributes pupils need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society." The PSHCE Association

At Queen Edith Primary School we aim to promote healthy, independent and responsible members of society. We encourage all our pupils to play a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community through class & school councils, fundraising events, supporting nominated charities and involvement in community activities. Our pupils are given opportunities in PSHCE lessons to develop confidence, self-motivation and an understanding of their rights and responsibilities within our diverse society. 

We teach PSHCE in a variety of ways: as a discrete subject, though assemblies and through subjects such as RE, History and Geography. Educational visits, community work and interaction with visitors also allows the children to develop their personal, social and health awareness. We also encourage children to develop their ability to confidently articulate what they are feeling or thinking during lesson time and beyond.

 When taught as a discrete subject, PSHCE at Queen Edith is taught through 4 main strands:

Assertive & Polite

In PSHCE Year 5 have been learning how to share ideas in an assertive and polite manner.

We were in groups of 4 and each had a role (sneaky fox, timid mouse, aggressive lion, assertive person). We made freeze frames about how each character would respond to the statement “what you believe is wrong”.

Quotes:
Kate as the assertive person: “I understand what you’re trying to say but it’s not very nice. I’d prefer it if you said nice things.” 

Sam’s group: “I understand what you believe but that’s very impolite and I’d prefer it if we didn’t have this conversation again.”
